Hoyerswerda

Is it industrial at all? What explains the PDS vote?

It was a major centre of heavy industry (lignite related, mostly) in the old DDR. Population these days is something like half that of the early '80's IIRC.

What's the "strong" (relatively so) FDP area in the southwest? Doesn't look like the normal wealthy urban/suburban area for the FDP.

Part of the Vogtland. The 8% for the FDP in the list vote seems to be coattails from the 25% (and second place!) the FDP's candidate for the direct seat there got; must have been some local notable or other.

GDR-built New Town. (Although it was a district seat back in the 19th century, so there must be some kind of old core. I passed through town last year, and it's way ugly.

Some lignite strip mining in the area still, btw. Looks like a cross between hell and the surface of the moon. Oh, and Sorbians (in the villages, mostly). And 100% of Germany's wild wolves.

I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.

Big surprise, right? Tongue

Interesting if nothing else then.

Btw, I was surprised at the high NPD %'s north of Dresden. I'd sort of assumed that NPD strength was mainly in and around the Erzgebirge.

Brandenburg list vote. Compare to the constituency vote map if you need a cheap laugh. Best part; the SPD actually won a constituency seat in a district that they trailed in the list vote! (one of the Potsdam districts). Admittedly the SPD candidate there was Platzeck himself but...

It's like an enlarged Berlin.

What's the strong SPD area in the northwest?

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

The Prignitz (well, part of it).

No idea why the strong SPD result.
